Paying Taxes 2014

Source: PricewaterhouseCoopers

From the Foreword:

This is the ninth year that the Paying Taxes sub-indicator has been part of the World Bank Doing Business project. The information that it generates continues to be highly relevant in providing a framework to compare and contrast tax systems around the world in a way that is not seen elsewhere.

The period covered by the study (2004 to 2012) has seen the end of a sustained period of economic growth, a severe recession and a slow recovery. Governments have had to balance the need to attract investment and foster growth while generating tax revenues. While the world is getting used to a ‘new normal’ as regards economic growth and a new world order in terms of the economies that are leading the recovery from recession, we find the public at large has become ever more interested in how companies are conducting business with a particular focus in ensuring that companies are contributing to the societies in which they operate. Tax and how tax systems operate has firmly moved up the agenda not only for governments, business and the media, but also for the man and woman on the street. Proposals for radical change to the way in which the international tax system works are being discussed and providing robust information to inform this dialogue has never been more important.
